Abendlied by Josef Rheinberger. The Stairwell Carollers, NEW Youtube video

Stained Glass window
Ottawa choir, The Stairwell Carollers, perform beautiful Abendlied - written by Josef Gabriel Rheinberger. This is a brand new upload of a video of our live concert performance, recorded at St. Barnabas Church, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, June 4th, 2016.
"The 3rd song from Joseph Rheinberger's collection of 3 sacred songs, titled "Geistliche Gesänge", first published in 1873, it's meaning is “Evening song”. It contains the text from Luke 24, 29: - “Bide with us, for evening shadows darken, and the day will soon be over.” This was when 2 disciples met Jesus on the road to Emmaus after the tumultuous events of the crucifixion. The disciples urged Jesus to stay with them after dark, when they reached the village. 

Josef Rheinberger (1839 – 1901), was a very gifted German composer, who was also an organist, conductor and professor at the Munich conservatory and various other musical organizations and churches in Munich."*
